Known for having more diners than anywhere else in the world, for its beautiful beaches, and for hosting the first-ever baseball game, New Jersey is a wonderful state. In addition to being the home of the world’s largest boardwalk, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the nation’s busiest airport, the Garden State is also home to a number of truly incredible local businesses — from acupuncturists to window cleaners — that work to serve their communities and make the world a better place.
Top Rated Local® is here to recognize the many local businesses that work to make New Jersey such a phenomenal place to live and visit. There are so many amazing businesses that serve the people of New Jersey, but only the best of the best have made it on our list of Top Rated Local award winners for 2020. Today, we’re ecstatic to announce our 2020 award winners in New Jersey.
To calculate our 2020 winners, we’ve looked at each business’ Rating Score™, which is determined by the total number of verified review sites the business is listed on, the total number of ratings/reviews the business has on those review sites, and the business’ average overall star rating. The more review sites a business is listed on, the more reviews or ratings a business has, and the higher the average star rating, the higher the Rating Score will be, with the highest being 100.00.
There are a large number of businesses that work hard to serve the people of New Jersey and provide them with everything they need to thrive, and this year, we’ve identified 402 total businesses that have made the cut. These one-of-a-kind, local businesses have clearly made an impact on the customers and clients they serve each and every day, as evidenced by their impressive average Rating Score of 96.94 and average star rating of 4.87.
